The only way to get into the Little League Classic game in Williamsport between the Phillies and Mets last night is to be a player in the Little League World Series or a family member of a player.
So a group of Williamsport locals got a little creative and found a way to watch the game without getting inside the ballpark. They built some scaffolding tall enough to see over the centerfield fence from across the street. They even used a chainsaw to improve their sightlines a bit.
It was a low-rent solution but it appears to have gotten the job done. Maybe next year when the Pirates and Cubs play in Williamsport these guys can build some more legitimate bleachers and charge admission.
Does anyone stand out here?
I know every year there’s a kid at the Little League World Series who looks like there’s no possible way he can be 12 or 13, but this is ridiculous. That’s Ronald Vizcaino, representing the team from Barcelona. He’s listed on the roster as 6'1", 248 pounds. By comparison, David Ortiz was listed at 6'3", 230 pounds.
